Thanks John

I've tried contacting the Regulator but without any real response as yet (two weeks later).

I'm helping a great guy who is taking a very commercial proposition and taking a robust traditional business model (Merchant Services - credit & debit card payments) and giving all of the individual transactional profits away through credible UK community networks.

What sort of thing David? For quick advice the regulators pages are pretty spot on http://www.cicregulator.gov.uk/guidanceindex.shtml

You can try and catch me on 0203 262 3044, thurs/fri afternoons are normally best, but post on here as well as it helps us share

Has anybody got suggestions for quick advice on the CIC application process.

I've helped submit an application for a colleague but struggling to get specific help with a non-standard CIC.

All advice warmly received!

Thanks

Hi there
We have just received our CIC status and we are interested in working with an acct / book keeper. Does anyone know of anyone that specialises in CIC's or that they could recommend for a small start up enterprise?
Many thanks
Linda
